Yay! As you can see, I'm not dead! I'm doing stuff, I promise... It just takes me a while to update because I am incredibly busy... all the time.... Blah. I'll write a journal up for that madness later.
So, while waiting on a commission mock-up to return in the mail, I decided to make
these... pants... out
Link's Skyloft outfit (specifically, his pants) of upholstery material that I found in a warehouse-store thing and they were *perfect* for the job. And it was so inexpensive! I spent less than $10 making these pants, and I am terribly excited about it haha.
Anyway, construction notes about
my surprise costume
Skyloft Link! As I stated above, the pants are made out of two different colors of the same type of upholstery fabric with a really short fur pile on it, and the waistband is lined in cotton undyed muslin. The three buttons on the front close via loops of the same material the waistband is made out of.
My lovely twin ~Coriacea
is the model for these since we are practically the same size. :0 She's so purdy. :3 not that you can really tell... At any rate, I appreciate the fact that she modeled for me!
Now for the fun bit! If you can guess who my surprise costume is within a week (end date July 24th) , you get a free request! Woo! I'll even color it. How shiny is that?! If you guys can't guess in time, I'll reveal it eventually I suppose haha. I have really enjoyed working on this so far though!
Time's up my dears!
Hope you enjoy these anyway- as always, Commissions are open!
